Finn x Merry

Finn x Merry

Finn bred OTCH Northwood Merry Moonsprite UDX4 OM5 VER RE TDX ASCA-TD(2) in early July, and on September 13, 2009 Merry whelped 7 pups, 5F & 2Ms. Merry is a second generation Obedience Trial Champion with amazing focus. We expected and got good-looking, compact, agile, athletic puppies with strong pigment, correct coats, good balance and toplines — extremely trainable in multiple venues. They should also have excellent field potential with Bart as their grandfather. And with Merry and Finnegan both being TDX dogs, Merry’s dam Sprite a CT and Finn’s sire Yogi just earning his Champion Tracker at age 11 (both on first attempts)  — these pups should be super trackers! One thing is for certain: they are sure to be “cuddle bugs” like their parents!

Merry’s breeder/owner kept Pink Girl while the other pups all went to their new homes in the Bay Area — except Ms. Red who flew home to Washington near Seattle to be with her new owner-handler and will be trained in obedience. Here are the puppies stacked at 6 weeks old and some older pictures in their new homes.
